About this Blog

Welcome to the world of Birds ~ Armchair birding via upclose videos. Adding quality to our life one bird at a time.
Seniors enjoy the gift of healthy memory activity they recieve from watching the theatre of nature. Test yourself to see how many birds you can remember. All shut-ins love the challenge of birdwatching from their windows, TV and computers.
Learn to identify the birds and they will soon feel like new friends.
We can only live one moment at a time. The birds will help us enjoy it as it reduces the fear that comes with memory loss.
Our thanks to the many youtube video producers who are bringing smiles to all who watch the excellent work.

In Pursuit of Birds of Paradise - All 39 Species

It is exciting to see the Birds of Paradise and even more exciting to follow the 2 photographer/scientists on their 8 year Bird of Paradise project.
You will be looking over their shoulder as they film many never before seen footage of this family of biological wonders of the world.

Watch and experience the condensed 8 years of their journey on the 50 minute youtube video.

And a 4 minute slide show of all 39 species of Birds-of-Paradise

Thank you Tim Laman of National Geographic and Edwin Scholes of Cornell Lab of Ornithology for incredible documentation that I could share with Seniors in a Assisted Living Home via youtube. Thank you to youtube for making it available to the world.
